Ramos grounds out. The Nats go 1-2-3 in the second.

Cardinals lead it 3-0. Top of the order to lead off the 3rd.

Good to see a couple HR's from the Cards, we needed to see some pop. Lackey is locked in.

Heyward had a questionable strike looking in the first pitch. Swung at one in the dirt. And then struck out looking on a 2-2 pitch high in the zone.

3:05 Central start time today for the Cardinals in D.C. This will be the 3rd of 20 games in 20 days.

Wacha (2-0 1.35 ERA) v Scherzer (1-1 .83 ERA).

The good news is that the Cards have dominated the Nats of late. In particular, Matt Adams seems to own them. The bad news is that we've never faced Max Scherzer in a Nationals uniform and he's been dominant so far.

I'd love to see Matt Adams have another good game and cary some momentum into Milwaukee. Games 1 and 2 in D.C. have been the tale of two Adams.

Molina gets a rare day off and Wong bats sixth:

Interesting lineup, I'm not a big fan of Jay hitting sixth but that's where he's gotten some looks lately. I would like a little more pop in the six hole than Jay provides. Maybe Wong can capitalize on the opportunity he's getting this afternoon and bring a little more power to the six hole.

I'd like to see Wong eventually move up to the leadoff spot or the second spot in the order. Maybe that will happen in a couple of years if he can improve his onbase  percentage. Love to have that speed at the top of the order.

Cards take an early 1-0 lead on a wild pitch with Carp and Heyward at the corners, moving Hey into scoring position with Adams at the plate with one out.

I completely agree. Carpenter is great in the leadoff spot and I wouldn't move him for anything right now, but I would love to see him in a higher RBI opportunity spot.

In a very sloppy bottom of the 5th Wacha trying to get out of major trouble.

He's had back to back K's.

Yep. I'd love to see Carpenter hitting down in the order.  I'd really like to see him hitting third.

Lots of sloppy action since my last post.

Holiday scored in the 8th on a Reynolds double and on the same play, Reynolds scored from 2nd on an error.

Cards up 4-1 headed to top 9th.

I sort of agree. I think this order can be tweaked as the year goes on. But it's nice to have a lead off base runner too.

1-2-3 for Rosie.

Cards take the series 2-1 in a weird 4-1 game.

Cards have now won 7 of last 8.

Hottest team in baseball not called the Mets.

By the way, the Mets won their 11th straight today.

Exactly. That's why Wong can't be leading off right now. Nor Heyward . Neither one gets on base enough.

But, if Wong can increase his OBP, I'd love to see him leading off and stealing bases with Carpenter knocking him in.

Agreed. Once Wong becomes more consistent he could absolutely lead off and put Carp in the 2/3 spot. Honestly right now we could probably flip Yadi and Matt Adams, too.

When you look at the talent on this team there's not a bad lineup you can construct. There are several players that can hit anywhere in a lineup and be effective. Heyward and Carpenter have proven that hey can hit anywhere, Holliday and Molina anywhere but leadoff. I like Wong's speed in the 1 hole, but his power potential is intriguing. Adams and Peralta need to be in RBI spots.

Now the problem for me comes in CF, I desperately want Bourjos on the bases and in the field, he's too fast not to utilize. Unfortunately the guy has proven that he cannot hit in his time in St. Louis. He hasn't gotten much of a chance this year; maybe he will and capitalize on it. Jay isn't an electric player, but he gets the job done. As long as he is consistently getting his hits and bringing solid defense, how can you move the guy?

True. We got into Milwaukee late last night and missed most of the game due to flight delays.

Looking forward to getting to Miller park early for some tailgating tonight.

On a less negative note. What did y'all think of Harris?

We've been waiting to see him. One of my good friends played with him at Navy. His stuff looked pretty good.
